Hi, I'm looking to change my oem wheel lug nut for some aftermarket ones.

I have a 08 fn2, wonder if anyone changed theirs and if it just a straight swap?

I'm looking to get the tegiwa lugs, anyone brought these and what do you think?

I'm happy for a second opinion.

Aluminium ones look good, but are fairly soft and prone to stripping. Also they don't last long if you're having your wheels taken on and off often with an impact wrench

Aftermarket ones are also tapered and OEM are ball / radius.

You would need to also get some taper - ball washers from Tegiwa in order to have them fit securely.

I have these in silver and they are fine, as muse said you will need some ball washers.... which tegiwa sell and Butler on here also sells them i think. Never use an impact wrench on them always use a torque wrench and get a long driver bit for them as you don't want to twist them.
